As anticipations run sky high for Christopher Nolan's The Dark Night, I thought it would be behoovy to remind y'all that he will never top a previous Batman franchise. I speak not of the Tim Burton movies nor of the fabulously atrocious Joel Schumacher flicks, but, of course, the Adam West starring TV series. What it lacked in depth and characterization, it more than made up for in b-level celebrity cameos and latent homo-eroticism. More than anything, however, it gave the world the batusi. And for that we will be forever grateful.
